My passion for empowering students and families to find their personal best path through education started from navigating my own.
While waiting to board a much-delayed flight in Mek’ele, Ethiopia, I met a professor who was eager to come to the US to study engineering.
My journey with College Liftoff began in the Fall of 2016, when I joined the staff as a marketing intern.
As a college planning advisor at College Liftoff, I arm students with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about college.
My passion for college planning came before I started working at College Liftoff.
Being a first generation college student, I was unaware of the world of college while simultaneously figuring out which college and program to choose for myself.
As a recent grad of The Ohio State University, I know the anxiety and excitement that comes with applying to college.
Back when I was a college-bound teen, I applied to schools I thought would have fun parties, warm weather, and football games.
My wife has reminded me that after four decades of a successful large corporation accounting/finance career, I am failing retirement badly.
I joined College Liftoff as the Director of Social Impact after seeing the results College Liftoff produced for my family firsthand.
Like most students after graduating high school, I didn’t know in what direction I wanted to go career wise.
Michaela’s bio will be coming soon!
It was the fall of 2009 that saw my high school journey quickly coming to an end with college creeping closer into sight.
